Pinemartin "Why (Does Your Love)"
- Words: Derek Opperman
Have you ever sat around wondering how to improve Carly Simon's 1982 single "Why"? No? Neither have we. Yet British producer Pinemartin seems to have been thinking along those lines when he covered the classic song for his recent free EP, Come Around Again, Again. It's a high bar to meet, but Pinemartin manages to excel by creating a nostalgic chillwave homage with all the right hallmarks. He strips out the vocals and lets the track envelope the listener through a barrage of warm analog synthesis. The Come Around Again, Again EP is out now, and available for free download on Bandcamp, here.
